Just like your baby, we’re changing too

From their very first attempts at turning onto their bellies to their very first steps, your little one's growing fast.

Do you remember bringing your bundle of joy home for the first time? From worrying about not using anything that would irritate their soft skin to a few months later, when they would kick their tiny little feet excitedly when changing them? Do you remember their giggles as they'd crawl away as soon as you got them out of their nappies? And do you remember how all of that time went by in a flash?

We are changing to keep up with your baby

Because of your little one's rapidly changing needs, we've introduced a new simplified colour-coded and updated range of products to help you pick the best nappies according to your baby's development. Our goal is to help you keep pace with your ever-changing baby, so they can feel comfy, dry, and free to roam at every step of the way to becoming a toddler!

We're now using new, bright colours for each range, to make finding the right fit for your baby more effortless than ever!

Here’s a quick guide to the updated range:

Just like your baby, we’re changing too

Happy Father’s Way

Father’s Day is just around the corner and we want to take the time to celebrate with all the dads and honorary dads out there who are doing an amazing job. And so, Squaddies, we have a fun mission for you, should you choose to accept it…

Father's Day

Let’s get our tweet on

Research has shown us that many dads don’t get enough encouragement and it’s our mission to change that. We want to shine a light on all the brilliant things that make dads so special just in time for Father’s Day.

So, whether you’re a dad yourself or you just want to celebrate the special man in your life, we want to hear from you. The team at Pampers are on the lookout for fab videos, pictures and stories that sum up the unique father-kiddo relationship.

We’d love to see genuine Dad moments. Think funny, ingenious, unexpected and heart-warming. Found a great hack for getting the little one to settle, discovered a face guaranteed to make the kiddo giggle, or something else that shows off those unique dad skills? Whatever it is, we want to know all about it and will share it to our official Pampers social channels to make dad a social media star – an extra little something to make this Father’s Day special.

Here are a few examples:

  • “I do silly voices when I read bedtime stories to our little one. She usually giggles herself to sleep. That’s ones of my favourite dad skills!”
  • “My little one is so lucky to have her Daddy, he’s been king of the night feed since day one.”
  • “My brother has proved to be the best “dad” for my kiddo. He can spend hours carrying her around the house like a horsie and has even learnt how to plait her hair!”

Don’t forget to include pics and videos to really make your tweet stand out.

And, the good stuff doesn’t end there, the best tweet will win a £40 Amazon voucher for Dad to spend on absolutely anything. Sound good? Then why not take to Twitter now and share your pictures, videos and stories? Be sure to include #HappyFathersWay #PampersSquad and to tag @Pampers_UK and encourage your pals to share their stories too.

Let’s create the world’s biggest Children’s Hand Washing Mexican Wave!

As we announced last week, Pampers teamed up with the British Skin Foundation to support families and children who are learning how to wash their hands.

Children’s Hand Washing Mexican Wave

Children are returning little by little to schools and nurseries and in the enthusiasm of seeing friends again, it will be easy for them to forget the importance of good handwashing habits.

That’s why the Pampers team and the British Skin Foundation are launching a new initiative in the form of a Children’s Hand Washing Mexican Wave! And us Squaddies have a very special role to play. 🙂

The idea is this, we’ll take two photos of our little ones – one pre-hand wash with their hands by their sides and another with squeaky clean hands held high in the air, then the British Skin Foundation team will turn these into the world’s biggest Children’s Mexican Wave to show we're all doing our bit to keep out little ones and others safe.

Fancy getting involved?

Visit thechildrenswave.co.uk on your phone and upload your pictures there to take part.

Also, share your experience on social media with us:

  1. Take a snap of your little one with their hands by their side
  2. Explain the importance of hand washing before taking a second smiley pic with a big grin and their freshly washed hands high in the air
  3. Upload your photos to the gallery and share to social with the hashtags #SquaddieHub #PampersSquad #TheChildrensWave and tag @PampersUK_ire
  4. Share the URL link to your online posts so we can show your creative masterpieces on the Squaddie Hub too!

*Please take photos in portrait (tall not wide) and make sure your child’s face is in the centre of the picture with their hands clearly visible. If a disability prevents your child from smiling or lifting their hands then assistance from you is both much allowed and very welcome.

Upload your photos

Share your URLS

Don’t forget that you can also download a free activity pack to help take children through fun activities explaining why handwashing is important and sing along the way!

We can’t wait to see your pictures!

@all: Did you find the free activity pack useful to explain the importance of handwashing?

Congratulations to Darcy157 for being our winner of the Isolation Creations Competition.

The Great British Hand Wash

Whatever our little ones' have been doing, encouraging them to wash their hands is something us parents have had to do since time began (well, there or there abouts...) but these days it matters more than ever. That’s why the Pampers team have teamed up with the British Skin Foundation to make sure our kiddo’s hands are clean as a whistle.

HW

With schools and nurseries gradually reopening, it’s especially important that children understand the importance of hand washing. The Pampers team and British Skin Foundation are launching a new initiative to support families and children through making hand washing fun.

All parents can now download a free activity pack which introduces the Skin Superheroes who help take children through fun activities explaining why handwashing is important, how it works and why washing our hands can make our skin dry. They can even create crafts and sing along the way!

Let’s wash our hands and share the initiative!

Here’s how:

  1. Take a snap of your little one washing their hands
  2. Upload your photos to the gallery and share to social with the hashtags #SquaddieHub #PampersSquad #PampersHandWash and tag @PampersUK_ire
  3. Share the URL link to your online posts so we can show your posts on the Squaddie Hub too!

Share your URLs

Not only do you get to share super cute pics of your kiddo but it’s the perfect excuse to explain to them the importance of handwashing once again.

@all: Does your kiddo understand the importance of handwashing?

Your isolation creations!

We’re all staying home more than ever before. The little ones aren’t going to nursery and playdates are on hold which means one thing, we’ve been getting more creative than ever! This week we’re highlighting those isolation creations…

Squaddies Hayz_85 and AmandaB26 Thank you Squaddies Hayz_85 and AmandaB26 for sharing these cute pictures with us.

Have you had your little one’s first ever baking session and made the most colourful cupcakes known to man? Maybe the kiddo has been working with edible paints and created some miraculously vibrant pics? Or, has the art session got a bit too enthusiastic and you’ve ended up with crayon all over the kitchen table? Whatever your creations look like, we want to see them.

We know that you’ve all been making, crafting or building up a storm and we’d LOVE to share your activities on the Squad to inspire other mums and dads who are fresh out of ideas!

We’ll be going through all of our favourite isolation creations and choosing one to win a £40 John Lewis voucher (to spend on creative endeavours for your little one or a pressie for you – we don’t mind!)

How to share

Instagram Mama brodyandnova probably speaks for all of us when she says that her bubba’s “infectious laugh and smile really does make being in lockdown easier!”

And so, if you could use a reason to smile check out your fellow Squaddie’s pics on Instagram – we promise, you’ll be beaming when you’re done.

Let’s share a smile

Say cheese! It’s National Smile Month and we think it’s time to share our brightest grins with the rest of the Squad. Smiling is contagious after all.

SMILE Thank you Sazzie19, EmmyBilly and Michelle1981 for sharing with us these cutes photos of their bubbas

Few things make our heart melt like watching our little one smile happily and, as it’s officially National Smile Month, what better way to celebrate than by sharing those beaming faces with your followers and fellow mums and dads?

What is it that makes your bubba smile? Does she love it when you blow raspberries on her tummy? Does he find your dancing hilarious? Whatever it is, we’d love to see it. And we’d love to know how they make you smile too!

The idea is this, take a pic (or look through your camera roll) to find the happiest, most smiley pics of your little one. Upload your pics to our gallery and to social media with a post that says how you and your little one make each other smile.

We’ll be going through all of your share a smile snaps and choosing our favourites. The ones which make us smile most will be featured on the blog as always and one lucky winner will receive a £40 Amazon voucher to spend on anything that makes them smile.

While @workhardparentharder shared her experience with an unplanned caesarean at Watford General:

“17 hours and an urgent caesarean later my little Oliver was born! The midwives at Watford General were amazing angels and I’ll always be grateful for the slice of toast post-surgery.”
